Special Interests - TV pilot

One-hour original TV drama following conservative lobbyists from Marshall&O'Connor trying to establish themselves as DC's best firm in the 70's. Written by Rogue Saint.

A few times I go out of established path of VillanLabs, which is creating fictional villains within dystopia, science fiction and dark fantasy genre. And that is mostly for short stories and feature screenplays. I've never considered myself a perfect fit for TV, books, or anything that stretches out over years. Not hundred per cent sure why. Could be that my absolute best works are results of pure thunderstruck of imagination.

However, I would never abandon creating strong antagonists based solely on type of work. So if it happens that a great idea crosses my mind, if I can execute it quickly, and if I can stay true to myself and the way I create stories and characters, I give it a green light. Even if I count it only as a writing exercise. This TV pilot, Special Interests, is one of them. What it is about? I'm happy to inform you.

Special Interests is a one-hour drama that follows the lives of lobbyists at the recently formed conservative lobbying firm Marshall & O’Connor, trying to establish themselves amongst DC’s best firms in the 1970s.

Theme and Series Development:

Special Interests follows the characters' struggles to live the life they lobby for. The main theme branches to illustrate shady deals, conflicting interests, intrigue and lies, a place where money buys power and overturns ideals. Another strong theme present in the series is the rivalry between Marshall & O’Connor and their landlord, the strong liberal lobbying firm Goodman, Liebowitz & Payne. While they influence decisions that will impact so many other lives, the lives of the characters themselves are unsettled and even messy more often than not.

Special Interests begins on Friday, September 21st, 1973, during tumultuous times in Washington DC and abroad, and in the middle of the Watergate scandal. Historic events such as the resignation of Vice President Spiro Agnew, the Yom Kippur war, the OPEC oil embargo, international coups, and various legislation and decisions in the US during the latter part of 1973 are fertile ground for episode plots.

How Much for a Friend? pilot synopsis:
